Partnership with the Johns Hopkins Urban Health Institute

My Goals, Trajectory, and Environment Project

Dr. Robert Blum, and the Johns Hopkins University Urban Health Institute partnered with Jane’s House of Inspiration’s IKids Network to help Baltimore City youth develop life skills for success. Through the My Goals, Trajectory, and Environment Project youth will develop a life skill profile, which  includes goal and objective setting, critical thinking, and time management. The aim of this project is to strengthen youths’ capacity to accomplish their goals despite environmental obstacles. Youth will express through photography how their environment  relates to accomplishing their goals, and with guidance from Jane’s House of Inspiration and the Urban Health institute, learn how to navigate environmental challenges and capitalize on environmental resources.
